It's going for accuracy in that Dragon Megatron was slightly more darker colors in the cartoon:
I think it's 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. I like the increase in gold detailing on the new version, but the lack of chromed/metallic red and purple paint on it is not cool. I'll have to do some extra detailing on the dragon mode head, neck plates, etc to make it look more like the toy and possibly repaint the eyes on both modes green.I'm not overly happy with the drab colour scheme of the new one... but I'm still going to buy it.
Holding out for the inevitable Cryotek deco on this mold.
There really needs to be a BW Megatron accessories kit. Rubber Ducky, Barrister's wig and Gavel, maybe golden disk reader for the eventual TM1 Megatron that we'll likely see at some point.
If they were going for a more muted show-accurate red, they’re way off. It’s kind of a weird middleground that doesn’t look very good or satisfy either the toy/show purists. Or it might be the right shade but the lack of the shiny texture throws it off IDK
Also the gold is probably gonna be mustard again. Eugh.
Of course, colors are easily fixed. the mold looks pretty good.
I'm trying to remember why he wore that in the first place...I can't help but notice that the new figure does NOT include the classic Barrister's Wig as shown in the above cartoon clip. This is a mistake.
But Jawbreaker/Cackle wasn't even there!Appropriate that it happened in Beast Wars because that was a total kangaroo court
Seems weird that Hasbro would go so hard on the "just like they were in the 80's", just to fumble it at the finish line.
